When Mr. Paul Cressey hits the track at Laguna Seca for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (aka The Monterey Historics) in his 1959 Peerless GT, he faces plenty of tough competition. For Paul, however, that competition is especially personal, including as it does his father, Ron, who is known for running his own 1959 Corvette in the same race.

TVR Is About As New As You'll Find An '85

Imagine driving fewer than a thousand miles a year. Of course, you probably wouldn't have much of a social life, but perhaps your car would look as factory-new as this 1985 TVR 280i, whose paint is ninety percent original. In the past twenty-nine years, it's only covered 21,000 miles.

The next day we set out on our road trip, driving through charming seaside towns in Liguria with a stop for an excellent lunch featuring the local specialty trofie al pesto. Back on the road and arriving in Monaco, we made the descent into town through the windy one-way roads and after several wrong turns finally spotted Pete’s early, bright-red Porsche 911E parked in front of a cafe.

This mysterious barn in the middle of nowhere wasn’t a simple farmyard building, but the workshop of the incredible ROFGO Collection. In 2008, Mr. Roald Goethe, with the help of Mr. Adrian Hamilton, began his collection of iconic Gulf cars, starting with an ex-works Gulf Ford GT40. Just six years on, this collection has grown to twenty-nine stunning machines including McLarens and Porsches.

Triumph Makes Romance Easier

Romance isn’t easy for many guys. Listen ladies, just because we don't want to be caught buying you an [adorable] fireman teddy bear for Valentine's Day doesn’t mean we don’t care about you. It just proves that we have no business expressing any sort of feelings. So how can a red blooded man express the true romance that lies dormant just waiting to burst from his heart?

When it comes to this Jag, I like the smell and the sound, most of all. I like the thin steering wheel, the bakelite switches, the feeling of the gearbox, and the hard clutch. The engine has a lot of torque and is gently powerful. And obviously, I love it because I have been dreaming of it since I was a child.

Rob and I talked long into the afternoon of his fascinating stories and life, some stories exciting, some deeply upsetting. But one thing I learned about Rob for sure is that he adores flying. His closing line to me was to try and experience as many things in life as you possibly can and truly live your life to the full. “Life is not a rehearsal, you’ve just got to do it.”

Just how renowned is it? Its legend grew larger still in 1973 when Mr. Steve McQueen cancelled a date with the gorgeous Ms. Ali MacGraw, so that he could stay home and wax his Belstaff jacket. Today, the Trialmaster continues growing in popularity with bikers, who have come to trust Belstaff's function-meets-style workmanship and is as much a part of the scene as bikes themselves.

35 Years On, This Shop Endures in an Improbable Location

When Bernie Sloan and Jeff Taw first opened British European Auto for business in 1980, everyone advised them against setting up shop in San Pedro, an out-of-the-way harbor enclave tucked at the end of the 110 freeway between Long Beach and Rancho Palos Verdes in the South Bay region of Los Angeles. “To an extent,” says Jeff, smiling as he reminisces, “they were right. Maybe we would’ve done better had we gone to Redondo Beach or Torrance, but hey, all the guys we knew with shops there are gone now and we’re still around.”

Access to this amazing machinery is not restricted, however, as the open-paddock format allows visitors to get close, providing a rare glimpse and the chance to hear the wonderful, old (and more modern) racers. Often without any kind of noise restrictions and with the teams' goal fixed on absolute power, you can feel the sound energy hit you in the chest as the burbling V8s and raspy V12s fire up.

Two weeks before Goodwood Revival last year, hotel booked and bags itching to be packed, I wondered why I hadn't received my tickets in the post–then the penny dropped. I had forgotten to actually buy the tickets. To say I was disappointed and angry with myself was at least an understatement. However, word was spread about my predicament and Mr. Stuart Roach managed to save the day, finding me, and giving me a couple of spare tickets.
